BUSTED: CNN’s Corey Lewandowski tried to hide his face Saturday as he stepped off Trump plane

Published

on

CNN political commentator Corey Lewandowski tried to hide his face from the media when he stepped off Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s plane in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday.

Politico’s Ben Schreckinger tweeted Saturday afternoon, “Lewandowski just got off Trump’s plane with a hood pulled down way over his face.”

Weather.com reported that Saturday afternoon temperatures in Newark were in the low 70s, so presumably Lewandowski was not shielding his face from the cold.

NBC political reporter Sopan Deb confirmed that Lewandowski has been traveling with Trump’s campaign this weekend. Normally media personnel do not travel with Trump and his advisors. The CNN correspondent has faced conflict of interest questions since he left the Trump campaign and started at CNN. FEC records confirmed in August that Lewandowski was double-dipping by continuing to take funds from Trump while pulling down a paycheck at CNN.

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien confirmed that the arrangement appears to be ethically questionable.

“This is pretty unusual,” she wrote on Twitter. “Generally speaking, a networks’s Standards and Practices team would not be okay with this.”

As Carlos Maza of Media Matters noted, Lewandowski has helped Trump prepare for debates and remained in contact with the candidate on a daily basis, essentially acting as an adviser and strategist for the campaign.

On Twitter, many users expressed anger at CNN for continuing to employ a commentator who is for all intents and purposes still an active campaign staffer.

CBS News received harsh blowback on Wednesday after the network announced it had hired former Donald Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus.

CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter posted on Twitter a clip of the network announcing the hiring.

The network quickly received criticism for the decision, especially in light of reports that everyone who works for Trump is required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which permanently bars them from ever disparaging Trump.

Here's some of what people were saying:

Republicans are losing — even if Trump will be acquitted: Columnist Max Boot

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot walked through the ways that Republicans are completely failing in their attempt to defend President Donald Trump.

The president's trial began Tuesday with a series of votes where Republicans blocked a vote on whether to include witnesses, evidence and any information from the House investigations. It appeared that the president's team was unprepared to argue against the witnesses and evidence, instead, demanding the trial begin immediately and arguments over witnesses be dismissed.
